''The song is about a woman dancing, her seductive powers through dance." - Shakira
''The reason why I named that song 'Hips Don’t Lie' is because, when I’m in the studio, I know when a song is ready and it can be taken out of the oven, and it’s exactly when my hips start moving.'' - Shakira
''I remember people from my own record company telling me ‘this is never going to play on American radio,’ and I was so sure that it would. So I had to practically convince the executives in my record company to pick up all the albums I had released and reprint them with 'Hips Don’t Lie' on it. I remember I said to [then Sony Music Chairman] Donny Lenner, ‘You have to trust me on this one. This is going to happen, this song is going to blow up.’ I knew it and it happened, it was a great prophecy." - Shakira
